Second in a series on law and the legal profession:

Host Dr. Richard Louis Miller in conversation with Attorneys Patrick Pekin and John Allison.

Patrick Pekin began handling criminal cases in Salinas where he represented clients accused of every type of crime from DUI to homicide. Because Salinas is a high crime area, he became experienced in cases involving gangs and violence. He was appointed to represent prisoners housed in the Salinas Valley and Soledad State Prisons who were accused of in-prison crime. He also has experience with cases arising from Atascadero State Mental Hospital and practiced in counties throughout the Central Coast of California.

John Allison has practiced law for 43 years. He built a successful private law firm practice as a trial lawyer and litigation attorney representing individuals, small businesses, non-profits and large companies.
